Warm up rings

Postby SherrindenFestivity » Mon Jan 24, 2011 7:43 pm

Do people not understand the basic rules of warm up rings any more? At a competition yesterday, people seem to have completley forgotten, passing left to left, what ribbons mean and giving people space! Is it just me?

Oh dear, poor you! I agree that I am always amazed by how many riders seem to forget the simple rules of riding in a school. I'm afraid I shout at riders who are coming towards me on the wrong side or getting too close to my horse. After all, I don't want an accident to happen. I would recommend you do the same - shouting out left to left or don't get too close could make a big difference.

I don't think it's being taught anymore!!!! I went into an advanced lesson the other day and no one knew the arena rules or simple etiquette! I just wrote a post on my blog about etiquette, would love for anyone to go and take a look at it and let me know what they think!! the link is www.wrappedinhorses.wordpress.com :)
